Wonderful Winter White

Second post for today, see below for my TSG Post :)

There is something so very beautiful about fresh fallen snow.  For those of you who live in climates without snow, I wish I could describe the amazing white, the shimmer like diamonds, the hushed stillness that comes over the land when it snows :)

Today's Flourishes Pre-Release Challenge is all about Winter White!  Show off a little pop of color, but make sure the overall feeling is white. 



Now all this white is a little uncharacteristic of me I know...but the beautiful crispness is growing on me :)    I've used the beautiful Boxwood Wreaths from the lovely Poinsettia and Boxwood set, stamping both the larger and smaller wreath in Memento Cottage Ivy Ink.  I cut out the wreaths and the pretty bow and set them together in layers.  

I cut out a larger oval shape window with my nestabilities into the white cardstock and then embossed it with the poinsettia embossing folder.  Then I created a smaller frame with my Oval Nesties and attached the gorgeous Pleated Ribbon behind the oval frame with Scor Tape, setting my ribboned ovals into the window I had created in the embossed layer.  


Then a little touch of pretty rhinestone embellishments....and curving the sentiment from the Rejoice Angel set and it's complete.
